D'angelo Russell sitting at home right now and I'm not sure he's happy.

How is Ingram a bust? If you think Russell is bust he isn't either.

If they happened to get Fultz we're talking KD/Russ/Harden level trio in terms of raw talent and versatility between Embiid/Simmons/Fultz. Jackson is a very nice talent but he has a ways to go to be a good fit with the two blue chippers in Philly. It could work out but Fultz would've scared me waaaaay more on Philly.

Trippin man. Ingram is going to be a star. If you watched the guy, you would know, especially later in the season.

So, the Celtics have decisions to make.

Isaiah Thomas is going to want the max. It seems unimaginable that he won't be in Boston next year, but if you're drafting his potential replacement, how can you justify giving him a humongous 5-year deal?

Yeah but the Lakers suck so bad they'll probably get the number two pick again next year after spending all of their cap on another Mozgov... Magic Johnson is one of the dumbest basketball minds ever(outside of a game of course lol)

Hopefully a Giannis or Kawhi type guy can be stolen at 14

Media is getting Ball tons of hype. Personally think Fultz is the best player, but even lots of people disagree with that. There isn't lots of separation at the top IMO. Just lots of good players, with lots of potential. I wouldn't be upset with any of Fultz/Ball/J.Jackson. I don't think anybody wins the draft until we see these guys in the NBA.

Dennis Smith Jr IMO is a huge sleeper. I'd take him at 3 if I was Philly. Congrats to the Celtics/Lakers tho. Be kinda cool if Fultz/Ball went 1/2 and went on to become rivals. Unlikely given different conferences and neither team will be hitting the finals like 4 times with them.
